    Great Service

    Lynne was very helpful with ensuring my dress was altered for the day. She made sure that I made it down the aisle without tripping over my dress. She also added the missing sequins and redid the button elastics from my off the rack purchase. To add the finishing touch, she made sure I could bustle the dress.

    Amazing! Everyone should choose The Dress Whisperer!

    Lynne is fantastic! She is quick to respond, friendly, professional, helpful, and accommodating. I had a lovely time chatting with her as she was putting the bustle in my dress. I would 100% recommend her to everyone.

    This review is long overdue as I unfortunately never actually ended up having my wedding due to COVID (it was supposed to be in Mexico), so cannot provide a picture of the dress or her work. Hopefully I'll be able to post again within the next year or so.

    Amazing seamstress and very accomodating

    Lynne was amazing. She finished my dress very quickly, did a great job and was super accommodating. My mom was in from out of town and Lynne was able to make time for me to pick my dress up and show us how to bustle it. She's also so friendly, the whole process was enjoyable.

    5 Stars All Round

    Lynne was great, from the moment I contacted her to picking up my dress. She was kind and totally calmed my anxieties about my dress alterations. Her prices were extremely reasonable for the amount of lace detail that my dress needs and I have already recommended her to a few friends who are getting married next year. Thanks so much, Lynne for making me feel great on my day!

    Blue Skirt Bliss

    Lynne is absolutely the dress guru. Everything about working with her from her punctual responses, adorable and artsy abode/workshop, her sassy confidence and clear pride of craftsmanship instilled in me the utmost faith in customizing my two piece dress into a unique and beautifully fitted dress and blue overlay skirt. She came in early, on price and with great enthusiasm. I'm so grateful to her for her work in helping to make my day so magical. I highly recommend her!

    Olivia ... talk about coming in early ... because you were organized well in advance, you made my job easy! You were a pleasure to deal with and I was excited to work on your dress. What a stunningly beautiful day.
